Casino Heroes has in the last few days added the latest online slot release from Yggdrasil titled Big Blox to their selection of games.
The Big Blox slot is a regular 5×3 reel layout and uses a 243-ways to win format that pays from left to right (3 or more symbols), the gameplay is fast and very simple to understand.
The main feature of this slot as you might expect are the special “Blox” which are in essence oversized symbol blocks that appear on top of the regular reels.
These special Blox are added to the reels on every spin, the mechanic is similar to slots such as Spinata Grande and Twin Spin so if you are a fan of either slot then this might be worth checking out.
On most spins these Blox will cover a 2×2 square, but on occasion the special Blox can grow in size to form larger squares and rectangles in various dimensions, and very rarely will grow to a huge Blox that will cover the entire 5×3 reels, meaning that whenever it lands it will create 243 winning combination of that symbol,
With a max payout of 3888x stake in a single spin there is definitely some potential for some huge wins.
The symbols contained inside these Blox will always land with a block of matching symbols inside, and these can include wild symbols and will be highlighted if they form any part of a winning combination with the other reels, making it easy to keep track of the winning combinations as they appear.
Overall Thoughts on the Big Blox Slot
The main disappointment is that Blox doesn’t have a main bonus round to trigger, instead, all of the action focuses around the special Blox and hoping for lots of 5 of a kind wins being created on the reels, and of course hoping for the super large Blox (5×3) to be created.
However, in our playtests, we found the vast majority of spins result in the regular 2×2 Box, with the Blox only occasionally growing to a larger rectangle or square, and a lot of the time in places that didn’t help create wins such as the 4th and 5th reels.
There are a variety of different high paying symbols on the reels and with the possibility of a full screen of matching symbols, the win potential is definitely there for some lucky players, but we struggled to get any wins over 50x in our playtests, hopefully, you will find bigger wins!
Blox also has an RTP (Return to Player) of 96.2% so you should get some decent playtime if you bet at sensible stake sizes.
As noted earlier if you are a fan of these fast paced simple slots then this is likely to appeal, as the graphics, sound and animations are all very well done.
But, in our opinion, there are much more enjoyable online slots from Yggdrasil to play in preference to this release, such as Cazino Zeppelin for a super high variance slot, Golden Fish Tank for an interesting bonus round, and Nirvana for the multiple unlocking bonus rounds.
Casino Heroes currently doesn’t accept players from the UK, so if you are looking to check out any of these slots from the Yggdrasil range then your best choices are casinos such as Betsafe Casino, Casumo and Vera and John Casino who all have a great selection of these Yggdrasil online slot titles.
